Found while out geocaching with Debiko. Now THAT's easy to find!

Excellent! DownShifter, MommioAndretti and I spotted this one as we were geocaching right near by.

Grew up near this benchmark.

Snapped a pic of this tank while caching nearby. Knew it had to be a benchmark.

BeanGeek and I found this one while attacking some nearby caches.

On my way to a bike fest with Capt Biggins and questioned to him if this was a bench mark- he told me to look it up (he is a pain on giving up info-LOL) and sure enough it was!!

Found as described.

I desided to start to look up benchmarks- and this is one is right out my backdoor and a 20min walk and there it was-5:00pm!! how cool!!

Found it today 6:55p. Skyboy01

Stumbled across this benchmark while searching for a nearby cache. Didn't even realize the tower was a benchmark until later.

The water tank is still here! Tank maintained and in Good condition. Water tank is now painted Tan and located just off the East-West trail, in Del Oro Park. Of course I cannot climb atop the tank to verify the disk.
